    Did a backup before the update
    Cleared cache partition after the update.

    Looks great! GIF support is now available in the samsung keyboard

    Long press a (supported) app and it shows shortcuts to taks within that app. I'll upload a screenshot later.

    Dual Messenger - Not sure what this is. I only have one Whatsapp account so I'll have to check this out.

    Lot more stuff to check out.

    I got to picture in picture by accident. A youtube video popped up out of nowhere in smaller box. Don't know what I did but it came up. Youtube is one of the few apps that support PIP

    I'm having pretty good luck with the beta as well. The biggest issue I have is that Solid Explorer does not see my sd card. The Samsung File manager and Poweramp both can access it without issue. A post on XDA said the Solid Ex needs to be updated for Oreo and the poster offered a workaround. If you enable "show root storage" (root not required) you can find the card listed as a bunch of letters and numbers. I just pinned that as a favorite so I can get to the card with digging in too far.

    I was considering rolling back but after clearing the cache partition and giving it a bit of time it seemed to settle down.

    I also saw the PIP thing with YouTube. It just popped up when I clicked a link.

    I ended up resetting the phone and it's really running well.
